Track Name: lighter
walking on my toes
your brown leather coat
picking at my fingers 'til they bleed
drink six more cups of water
sleep in, never take a shower
if this is life, that's okay with me

you don't have to stay
I wouldn't blame you if you backed out and looked the other way
you don't have to say anything
say anything, say that it's okay

I don't have a folk punk metaphor for this
but I've never been this comfortable
and this fucking restless
sitting next to you I wish I was someone else
somewhere else, I wish I knew what to say
but as long as the things I know you don't know it'll be fine
it's like my first time feeling

you just see me as a mess that smells like cigarettes
I thought I quit but I forget
I know the the smell turns you off so I'll
smoke another pack and tell myself that's why you don't want me

you don't have to stay
I wouldn't blame you if you backed out now and looked the other way
you could leave today
I won't say anything, say anything
Track Name: sap
I don't have a thing to say
I wouldn't want to anyway
I'll splash water on my face
as I come undone
my hands might shake but it feels okay
as you become someone
and I'll go home and sleep tonight
I swear this time I will
you're in my dreams, promising
but I know you never will
